Las Vegas is beginning to feel like a home venue for Conor McGregor and the UFC champion has shown his appreciation for the incredible travelling Irish support he has received Stateside.

The biggest star of UFC capped an incredible 2015 when he defeated Jose Aldo earlier this month at the MGM Grand to become the undisputed featherweight champion, demolishing the previously undefeated Brazilian in just 13 seconds.

Like his previous fights in Vegas, thousands of Irish fans flocked from right around the globe to lend their support and McGregor has often acknowledged the role they play in his victories.

McGregor shared a video from The Benchwarmers Facebook page showing the green invasion of Vegas.

"NOBODY does it like the Irish!! ‪#‎SpineTingling‬," was the message accompanying the video.

The post received more than 30,000 likes since it was shared.

NOBODY does it like the Irish!! #SpineTingling
